  Tracy designs unique hats in several types of fabric:
Paper Straw is hand dyed and then blocked to sculpt hats that are made to travel; they are packable, and the hat size is adjustable.  Perfect for festivals, the garden or the beach.
  Tracy's fabric hats are suitable for both women and men, and she makes a line of kids hats as well.  All of her cotton hats are made of fabric that has been pre-washed, so that if they ever need washing, they will not shrink.  Having a deep love for all fabrics, Tracy likes to work in velvets, silks, linens, wools and tapestries, all depending on the season.
  In the early 90's Tracy made a rubbing of the beloved New Orleans Watermeter, and since then has silk-screened it onto fabrics for the crown of her hats, for bags, and for her popular Water Meter Potholders; works of art that are quilted and embroidered.
